FAQ - College of Continuing Education (CCE):
The first step in applying for financial aid is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for each academic year you apply for financial aid.
This form is used to adjust your cost of attendance based on your CCE degree program. It also required to award aid for the current year based on courses provided for the Fall and Spring terms. A change in enrollment (courses) requires a revised CCE Information Request form.
Requests for fee deferments must be made through CCE Credit Registration Services. CCE Credit Registration has a process where financial aid applicants are temporarily exempted from the disenrollment process that goes along with fee deadlines for students enrolled in CCE courses. Once you have been awarded aid for the semester, CCE Credit Registration is notified and upon acceptance of aid will defer your fees until financial aid disburses to your account. For questions about fee deferments please contact CCE Credit Registration at 916-278-6984.
